Estreines à Anne

Language: French (Français)

Ce nouvel an pour Estreines vous donne
Mon cueur blessé d'une novelle playe.
Contrainct y suis; Amour ainsi l'ordonne,
En qui ung cas bien contraire j'essaye;
Car ce Cueur là, c'est ma richesse vraye;
Le demeurant n'est rien où je me fonde;
Et fault donner le meilleur bien que j'aye
Si j'ay vouloir d'estre riche en ce monde.
